The programme returns this year for 10 week programme, starting Saturday 9th March.

The Circular Economy is a vision of a world where both the making and using of products wastes nothing. It offers an alternative to the traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) and aims to keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
